Israel Impressions: The Photographs of Paul Margolis
Main Sanctuary Foyer
2 Lake Street, San Francisco, California
The Elizabeth S. and Alvin I. Fine Museum is pleased to present “Israel Impressions: the Photographs of Paul Margolis” from May 11th until June 27th in the Main Sanctuary Foyer.
Paul Margolis is a documentary and fine art photographer, as well as a writer. His subjects include people living on the margins of society, vanishing Americana, historic architecture, and the vibrancy of life on the streets. He uses traditional cameras in his work and he still hand-processes and prints black and white film for the classic look that it gives.
In the fall of 2013 and again the following year, Paul Margolis visited Israel to photograph the land and people. He covered 11 different cities in 14 days, working the streets, market places and homes with his quiet, discreet Leica camera and black and white film. The photos reflect pastry merchants discussing their wares, Arab fishermen, a rock festival held close to the border with Gaza, a very pregnant young woman in the Negev Desert, aportly bedding merchant re-lighting his cigarette in a quiet moment, and many other scenes. These photographs are a small portion of the work representing slices of day-to-day life in Israel.
